We didn’t start boarding until after the scheduled departure time so everyone was a little tense, a few more so than others. The flight crew did their best, but without any supplies like food or water, there was little they could do to placate us. We were ugly getting on the plane and got uglier as the flight went on. When we turned on the flight crew, I think everyone was a little surprised. After all, this was a nonstop flight, the only one to our final destination. What else could we do but endure, even if this flight took us across the river Styx. Looking back, we could have behaved better. It wasn’t like the crew kept us from heaven or hell. We’d had a lifetime for that.
